CERT City Simulation Radio Network is a weekly interactive training net emphasizing emergency communication, essential radio skills, and CERT disaster preparedness and response skills.
Each Friday evening at 8 pm you may join us for a short trip to CERT CITY, the metropolis located in the wonderful and beleaguered state of CONFUSION -- a city that seems more disaster-prone than an elephant in an antique lightbulb shop! Mixed-in to the training we'll have fun games, useful topics, and/or deep existential questions.
Join via ham radio
Tune your radio to the 146.88 MHz DARC repeater (110.9 Hz CTCSS (PL)).

Zone 2 Leadership meets 1-2 times a month.
What does Zone Leadership do?
We schedule and develop events, recruit speakers and subject matter experts, work on in-person meetings, develop slide decks and surveys, have a slate of officers who serve to handle social media, logistics, education, events, safety, and much more!

(Now that we're able to meet in person again, Sunday Skills has been replaced with PT & Skills)
Originally titled Sunday Stay-at-Home, SSaH has been one of our most prominent activities during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Seeking a greater focus on skills and education, we renamed the weekly event to Sunday Skills-at-Home.
Then, at the end of 2020, we decided to trim the time and change the name again to Sunday Skills-at-Home Hour. Sometimes we customize the name to Sunday Speaker-at-Home. Some Sunday events may certainly run over an hour, especially when we have an invited speaker, but for our regular CERT Quiz events, we try to keep our time to about an hour.
